Thread: Soldering station.
29/08/2016 11:40:21

I have seen a 100w iron in Maplins, would this be hotter enough. Thank you

Thread: Soldering station.
28/08/2016 20:04:44

Thank you for your advice. At the moment i have a 75w iron but i think i have ruined the tip by constant cleaning with sandpaper as i find i cannot seem to tin the iron due to the solder not sticking to the tip and also the tip constantly being blacked at lot. Never been able to do constant soldering reasonably well hence the idea of a decent soldering kit. Regarding soldering piano wire , i have seen a 100w iron in Marlins, would this be good enough . thank you.

Hi, Can anyone recommend a decent soldering station with temperature controlled iron and accessories which i can use for small jobs but can be used for soldering piano wire such as cabine struts and undercarriage. Thank you

Thanks Trevor, Steve webb got back to me to comfirm that they have the Flair SE5A in stock. Although i like the Sopwith Pup It looks like there is a struggle to get lipos in due to the short nose so iam leaning towards the SE5A at the moment.

Well that puts the cat amongst the pigeons. Looks like Steve webb still has the SE5A in stock but sent them a email to make sure. Pegasus models has a slightly larger sopwith Pup from Busa in stock has well. Must admit i do like the pup and i did remember reading another blog that the BUSA Pup did fly well. Decisions,decisions.

Trevor, Was ready to purchase the Balsa usa sopwith Pup but found a old build blog and was not impressed with the quality of the parts regarding wing ribs not fitting, one wing on plan smaller then the other and so on. Will take a second look at steve Web models and see if it is still available. Glen

Will keep this in mind.

21/08/2016 21:51:59

thanks but already seen it, Was going send you a pm at first.

21/08/2016 21:50:55

Thank you for your comments. If i went ahead with this build it would have to be electric, do you think that would be possible.

Anybody had experience with the DB Tripehound which is a semi scale Fokker regarding building and flying.This is the plan, pack and being a tri-plane would certainly keep me occupied.

Thanks, will have a look.

Seems like Db sport,scale are a top class manufacturer and i have my eye on the Tiger moth but i have seen a pup around 54 inch wingspan which i think i can get in my van fully rigged. The kit is from Balsa usa and i was wondering if any one can give their thoughts on quality please.

18/08/2016 20:03:08

Thanks Geoff for your comments. So it does not take long to rig the Tiger moth for flight, This was one of my main concerns and if it could handle a slight breeze as it always seems to be windy these days. I have a small van so i was hoping i could transport it all ready assembled but i have a 55inch pattern ship and that only just goes in so i think the Tiger Moth might be a struggle. Best regards glen

Thankyou for your response, Iam actually looking for something to build this coming winter to keep me out of mischief and i fancied a Pup. DB sport,scale have a 80inch span which is a bit to big and a 40inch span which is a bit too small. I think i will turn my attention to the 58inch Tiger Moth from DB which is about the right size and can be converted to electric.

Hi, I have been trying to obtain a Flair Puppeteer to no avail and it seems most flair products are out of stock. My question is flair models still trading.

Actually it would only take me about 15 mins to repair so will get back to you after my break . Glen

Hi Tom , will be away on hols for next week so will give it a rest and see how I feel after . Thanks for your offer but if I Decide to carry on will come over to your place if that is okay as I would not expect you to come to my place. Glen

02/06/2014 16:11:45

Sorry Tom but i think my auto gyro days are over. Just about got fed up of going to the field trying it and bringing it back in pieces. I think this time was the last straw. I can not keep asking you questions all the time when i can not sort it out myself so i think i will just stick to flying the CF on occasions when i take my fixed wing to the field. Thank you for your time and help over the last 12 months and at least i gave it a try. Glen
